Greirat of the Undead Settlement is a NPC in Dark Souls 3. Greirat will occasionally ask if he can go and "steal" items for you that he will then sell you. 

 

Greirat of the Undead Settlement Information

 

Location

  • Initially locked in a cell, below the Tower on the Wall bonfire in High Wall of Lothric. You can find the Cell Key inside of the workshop below the Pus of Man which erupts on the rooftop. After heading down the ladder and defeating the Lothric Knight, follow the stairs at the end of the hall down to the base floor. Several Starved Hounds and Hollow Soldiers will be patrolling the area. The key is located at the back wall, down a flight of stairs which leads to a Starved Hound and eventual dead end.
  • After accepting his request he appears at the Firelink Shrine as a vendor, asking you to remember about his request when talked to.
  • You can find Loretta's Bone past the Undead Settlement bonfire. It is on a corpse hanging from the balcony of the first house the player will enter, overlooking a congregation in front of a burning tree.
  • After delivering Loretta's Bone, he will tell the player to keep the ring, but other than that will not react. Once the world is reset, however, he will be in a curled up position and will give the player the Curl Up gesture, while remaining unresponsive. Once the player leaves and enters Firelink Shrine once more, he will ask for permission to scavenge for more items. He will return following the next boss kill and can return as early as after Curse-Rotted Greatwood.

Greirat's Questline

You must visit the Undead Settlement after sending Greirat on his first mission to trigger him to leave the Firelink Shrine for the first time. If you are having trouble getting Greirat to leave Firelink, try warping to the Dilapitated Bridge bonfire, cross the bridge and make your way through the ruins to the Road of Sacrifices.

To trigger his second scavenging quest, cross the bridge between the Catacombs and the Boreal Valley.

 

Steps that ensure Greirat's survival on his second scavenging quest (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley):

There are two characters who can save Greirat - but they both need the Catarina Armor Set. The first is the man who steals it - Unbreakable Patches. He can be found in the Cathedral of the Deep, and will trick you. If you confront him, and fall into his trap in the Firelink Shrine Belltower, and confront him again, he'll become a merchant. He'll also ask where Greirat went when he runs off to Irithyll, and actually owes the guy a favor. Telling him where Greirat went will ensure he'll be rescued by a "peculiar Onion Knight", in other words, Patches. You must send Greirat out to Irithyll and inform Patches of his destination before you defeat Pontiff Sulyvahn or he will cease to ask. Of course, if you buy the Catarina Set, Patches won't have a disguise to rescue Greirat , dooming him. [Tried this and Greirat was found dead in Irithyll: crossed the bridge, sent Greirat to Irithyll, told Patches about him (without purchasing Siegward's armor), then immediately killed the Old Demon King] (Greirat returned safely when I tried: crossing the bridge, sent Greirat to Irithyll, told Patches about him (without purchasing Siegward's armor), then immediately killed Pontiff)

Siegward of Catarina is the other character who can save Greirat, but he'll need his armor for that. After encountering Patches at the Cathedral of the Deep, you can find Siegward - armorless and stuck in a well outside the Cleansing Chapel Bonfire. If you did buy the armor from Patches, you'll need to throw it down to Siegward so he can get out. He'll escape on his own. Do not yet proceed towards the Irithyll Dungeon, because if you do, Siegward of Catarina will leave Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, and will not be around for saving Greirat's life - if you do, Greirat would die upon vanquishing another boss.

  • Don't explore Irithyll Dungeon (you can trigger the first bonfire, but no further, and do NOT talk to Siegward in Boreal Valley) or the Profaned Capital before killing one boss. This will cause Greirat to die.
  • If you owned Catarina Set from a previous walkthrough, Patches may not rescue Greirat on his own, in this case, give your armor set to Siegward and do NOT purchase Catarina Set from Patches until Greirat is rescued.
  • As a fail save, be sure to clear out the Sewer Centipede before proceeding to defeat Sulyvahn.
  • If you fail, Greirat's corpse will be found along with his ashes in the sewer area underneath the kitchen in Irithyll.
  • I made it all the way to "Church of Yorshka" bonfire before I sent Greirat to plunder. After sending him I immeditely went to "Cleansing Chapel" bonfire to give Siegward his armour before continuing on in Irithyll. I lit the "Distand Manor" bonfire, met Siegward in the kitchen and then after killing Pontiff Sulyvahn, Greirat was alive and well.

 

Greirat's Third Outing (Lothric Castle)

He will request to leave for a third time to Lothric Castle. He will die if he goes; there is no way to save him. Patches will ask where Greirat went, but this only causes Patches to disappear for a time. Patches will return later and add one Hidden Blessing to his shop inventory, while failing to save Greirat. Greirat's Ashes can be found on the roof at the Grand Archives, after jumping down where you see a group of Corvians. Giving Greirat's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid will allow her to sell Exploding and Splintering Bolts, along with every other item he used to sell. Additionally, items which were sold by both NPCs (like Firebombs) are overwritten by Greirat's lower prices (50 souls for a Firebomb, instead of 100).

Dialogue

 

First encounter (High Wall of Lothric)

"Ahh, you're no jailer are you? No, no, you're from far away.  And judging by the bell... You must be some of that unkindled ash.  Remarkable, if that's true, then i have a favour to ask.  Below the High Wall is a musty little town.  Not the home of any lord, just a very old settlement of Undead. An old woman, Loretta, lives there.  Please give her this ring.  I- I am not asking for charity.  In fa- in fact if you do this for me... I'll be sure to repay you in kind.  I-I may be a petty thief, but I've more wits than most royalty.  What do you say, then?"

[Refuse] "Yes, well, why should you? But if you change your mind, give me a shout, eh? I-I'm only a petty thief. I've nowhere else to go. Not like there's anything calling to me out there.. heh"

[After Refusing] "Oh, what have we here? Changed your mind perhaps? You deliver the ring, and I offer my co-operation. Hardly a shabby deal, hm?"

[Grant Request] "Very Well. I humbly place my faith in you.  I am Greirat of the Undead Setlement, and I promise to assist you.  Give this ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  ...Do your part, and I'll do mine."

[Attacking him] "Cold piss, what the devil is it now?  I get caught once, and now this!  One bloody time! Curse the gods!"

[You die] "As they say,  "The cornered rat will lick the balls of a cat." "

[Killing him] "(Forgive me, mother.) Forgive me, dear..."

 

Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)

"Oh, hello, you're back.  And in one piece. Well, now it's time I do my part.  Whatever trinket you need, speak up.  Just don't ask me where I got them."

[Talk] "Do me a favour, and don't forget our promise.  Give the [this] ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall.  A nuisance, I know, but it'll help me tie up some loose ends."

Give Loretta's Bone

"Heavens, she was already dead...  Thank you. I-I'm not surprised, though.  Hmm, almost a relief, really.  You can keep the ring.  As, well, a little trinket of thanks, I suppose."

[Leave] "Goodbye, and stay safe.  Oh, this place is a bore. What good is thievery if you've nowhere to go?"

[Attacking him] "You're heading for the brink aren't you?  Well I won't let you drag me down!  En guarde, you crusty ash bastard!"

[You die] "Cold piss, why did it come to this..."

[Killing him] "(Cries) I've gone and run my course, haven't I?"

 

Pillage (Undead Settlement)

"Ah, there you are. I was thinking...  You know I'm a petty thief.  Well, perhaps I'll go on the prowl.  Everyone's dead or hollowed away anyway, right, so...  I might as well fetch some weapons or treasure for you.  Well, what do you say?"

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that's your wish I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I wouldn't want to lose my touch..."

[Talk] "What is it? Have you changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you. You will not be disappointed.  Greirat the Thief was once a well-known name.  Until I ended up rotting in a cell..."

[Leave] "Good-bye. I will leave for some time. So long for now.  Do stay safe, you hear? Or my efforts will have been for naught."

[Return] "Oh, hello, you've come at a good time.  It took some prowling, but I've finally made a score.  Go on, have a gander."

 

Pillage (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley)

"Ahh, hello, fine work, I say.  Discovering Irithyll in the Boreal Valley, all in a day's work.  If the tales are true, it is home to old moon-worshipping nobles, and should be packed with treasure.  What do you think? Shall I go and see what I can find?

[Refuse] "All right, fine and well.  If that is your wish, I can only obey.  But, feel free to change your mind later.  I hate to leave a city of nobles ripe for the picking..."

[Talk] "What is it? Changed your mind?  I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."

[Send him to pillage] "Mm, a fine choice!  I am greirat, the thief. What I bring back will be worthy of that name."

[Return] "Oh, then, we are both safe and sound.  Thank the gods for that. I don't like cutting things so close.  I might've died if it wasn't for that peculiar onion knight.  But in the end, it all paid off.  Take a good look. They're sure to be of some use."

 

Pillage (Lothric Castle)

"You know, I was thinking...  About leaving for another round of thieving.  There must be something of use in Lothric Castle.  I-I'm aware of the danger. That castle is a death trap.  Not a single man has returned from the castle unscathed, even back in the day.  But I don't want sit around and die a petty rat.  And I consider myself your friend."

[Refuse] "Right, fine. You're very thoughtful, you are.  But, if you change your mind, do speak up.  I meant every word of what I said."

[Talk] "Changed your mind?  I hope you do. I lived a petty rat, but would rather not die as one."

[Send him to pillage] "Thank you, for placing your trust in me.  Oh, don't you worry. I know Lothric like the back of my hand."

 

Trivia

  • Voice actors, chracter inspirations, fan art, cosplay goes here.
  • The hat he is wearing is a Thrall Hood. It is said that people who wear the Thrall hood are either slaves or criminals,
  • When Patches takes residence in the Firelink Shrine he mentions that Greirat did him a good turn in Lothric Dungeon.
  • Selling him the Blue Tearstone Ring after giving him Loretta's Bone does not change his dialogue.

      R.I.P. Greirat

      A true friend. May he always be remembered for his strength of will and open heart. Though Greirat has left us in this life, we shall meet him again, dwelling within the pearly gates with his dear Lorreta. May he rest in peace. Amen.

        give onion his armor > pass the damn bridge > send Greirat onto his 2nd mission > kill a random boss (old demon for me) > back to shrine to see Greirat alive

        simple as that

        • 11 Dec 2016 14:15

          Since I messed up the first time playing this game in Irithyll, Greirat never came back. This is what I did in the new character which worked.

          -Do the Siegward mission and return his armor in Cathedral Deep.
          -Once in Irithyl, speak to Siegward in the kitchen in Irithyll (yes , you can speak to him and he will take a nap after).
          -Explore Irithyll as much as you like but don't go to Irithyll Dungeon at all.
          -Kill the Pontiff Sulyvahn Boss.
          -After killing the boss, now you can send Greirat to Irithyll.
          -Instead of going to Irithyll Dungeon, go to Anor Londo and Prison Tower then kill the Aldrich Boss. (Youn need to kill a boss for Greirat to return)
          -Return to Firelink Shrine, you will find Greirat back with new items to sell.
          -Now you can go ahead with Irithyll Dungeon.

            Ok so there is a lot of confusion about this so I will just throw my 2 cents into the mix.

            First- You must give Siegward his armor in Cathedral Deep before sending him to pillage or after sending Greirat to pillage you must talk to patches after he leaves and tell him where he went but patches must still have Siegward's armor. If you bought the armor, didn't give it to Siegwards before Greirat leaves to pillage, then Patches will not go looking for him and Siegward will not be there to save him. This is especially important in your second play through. Make sure one of them has the armor.

            Second- If you are following Siegward's quest line then you can not speak to Siegward at the fire in the Irithyll Kitchen, after sending Greirat to pillage, before defeating another boss or Greirat will die. I believe speaking to Siegward breaks the quest line because he falls into a deep sleep after exhausting his dialogue and doesn't respond to Greirat's need for help below the kitchen. This purely my speculation and theory on the matter. I just recently did this on two seperate characters. I rescued Siegward in Cathedral Deep, went through the catacombs proceeded to the bonfire across the bridge in Irithyll to help Siris and then sent Greirat to pillage. Next I went to kill the Old Demon King in Smoldering Lake, killed him, returned to Fire Link and Greirat was a live and happy. On my other character I sent Greirat to pillage but talked to Siegward before killing another boss and Grierat died.

            • 29 Nov 2016 06:40

              The Pontiff's mortality seems irrelevant to Greirat's well-being. I returned Siegward's armor then sent Greirat to the Undead Settlement before killing the Lothric Princes. Obviously, he returned unharmed. I then sent him to pillage Irithyll before killing Oceiros, Greirat again returned unharmed.
              It seems sensible that if so long as Siegward can be seen waiting infront of the fireplace of the Irithyll kitchen, then Greirat is safe in Irithyll; this was the case for me. I did, however, completely avoid the Dungeons while Siegward was in the kitchen, can't confirm the importance of that though.

              • 24 Nov 2016 17:54

                Small precision about saving him in Irithyll : On NG+ I had thrown back the armor to Siegwart (bought to Patches) I sent Greirat to Irithyll mission *after* killing suhlyvan. Talked then to Siegwart in the kitchen, then killed aldritch. Greirat came back unharmed \o/

                • 24 Nov 2016 03:29

                  Pretty sure his quest line is glitched. I've done too many playthoughs and only managed to get him to survive once and that was on one of my first characters shortly after the games release. Since then he always dies in irithyll. I've looked up every guide i could find on his questline and followed them all perfectly but it never works.

                  • 09 Nov 2016 15:26

                    Ok so I haven't sent him to irithyll as he died last time, now I've progressed all the way to past the dancer. But I want his wares for the twinkling - any way to do that without him dying?

                    • 04 Nov 2016 11:56

                      Anyone else finding greirat randomly dying when being sent to irithyl?

                      I've had him not survive sometimes when I tell patchs where he has gone while patches has the catarina armour and the onion is in the well. Most of the time this works but sometimes I find him dead.

                      • 02 Nov 2016 14:15

                        Im on quest 3 for greirat so i fully did his questline, i found him..thing is that i cant pick up his ashes. It says "Unable to acquire Greirat's ashes due to inventory or storage max." I dont have his ashes in my inventory or storage,he never died in ng (im n ng+) so i cant possibly have his ashes saved in my storage at all,what do i do?

                        • 26 Oct 2016 00:26

                          Greirat my favourite npc can finally be rescued on his third run due to the dlc patch! I

                          I dont know if it requires a game + untouched with the dlc installed or buying/not buying from him. I failed once while doing everything the same the ONLY circumstances changed was the run fresh with dlc installed buying stuff from his inventory and not buying anything at all ( let catarina save him the first time around so patches has more mojo for the second rescue as well as keeping anri alive up to aldrich as he is critical to it )

                          • 25 Oct 2016 00:46

                            I didn't meet Patches in the Cathedral of the Deep at all.
                            Bought the Firelink Tower Key and met him there when he trapped me (travel to a few places first before he shows up)
                            Seigward appeared in the well after travel to several places
                            Bought the armor from Patches.
                            Met Siegward at the Irithyll Kitchen & defeated Pontiff
                            Sent Greirat on the Pilgrimage to Irithyll and he still survived.

                            • 24 Oct 2016 17:20

                              Important to note: even if he dies on his second outing, you can still buy the items he pillaged in Irithyll - aftedr giving his ashes to the Handmaiden of course. At first I thought he needs to return safely for these items to be unlocked, but thats not the case! Still...I miss him in Firelink ;(

                              • 22 Oct 2016 12:41

                                So I'm in my fourth journey and forgot to grab Greirat. I unlocked his cage around the time you enter Izalith and didn't progress his quest. When I got past the Dragonslayer's Armor boss fight I came back to buy a few upgrades and noticed Greirat was standing up straight, he never stood up before. I approached and he attacked me, I don't remember attacking him, did I do something to aggro him?

                                • 21 Oct 2016 17:37

                                  FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS THE SECOND PILLAGE QUEST RESULTING IN GREIRAT'S DEATH: i can now confirm that you have to kill all the sewer centipedes (might as well grab the excrement-covered ashes, not sure) in the sewers in irythill for greirat to survive. i only crossed the bridge, sent greirat, informed patches about him, killed a boss, greirat was found dead in irythill. i put back the savegame, ran through irythill, but killed all the sewer centipedes (didn't do anything else really), and greirat was alive and well with the rest of the mentioned things above :)
